William of Tyre records her as sister of Etienne de Champagne Comte de Sancerre, but does not name her. The Annales S. Benigni Divisionensis record the mother of Hugues Duke of Burgundy as "filie comitis Theobaldi comitis Campanie". The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Maria Burgundie ducissa, secunda Agnes Barri Ducis comitissa, tertia quedam ducissa in partibus remotis, hanc postea duxit Guilelmus Goez in dyocesi Carnotensi, quarta comitis Mathildis Pertici, quinta monialis Fontis Ebraldi, sexta Adela Francorum regina" as the six daughters of "comes Campanie Theobaldus".
She was regent for her son during his minority from Sep 1162 to Apr 1165. "Maria ducissa Burgundie" donated property to Cîteaux by charter dated [1171/72] which specifies that she was acting while "Hugo dux Burgundie filius meus" was on a journey to Jerusalem. After 1165 she became a nun at Fontevraud, and was abbess in 1174.
A list of foundations at Troyes records the memory "13 Mar" of "Marie fille du Thibaut comte de Champagne et femme d'Eudes duc de Bourgogne", recording that she was buried at Fontevraud where she died "le 11 de ce mois". 1
